Alley Oop in the city..



'You can't win unless you learn how to lose'.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.. 

Snapped a couple of quick shots yesterday of the two above shooting hoops as we were leaving Elizabeth Quay heading back to the CBD. Although there was a difference in age the older gent was holding his own.. made me think of the expression 'it ain't over till the fat lady sings' :) That's the Esplanade behind, a mixture of old and new architecture. Can you guess which I prefer, especially as the 1920's Art Deco facade was preserved, check out some interior shots here.. fabulous! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  7. The last photo tells it all. Deco wins hands down and those other buildings that surround it, highlight the Deco even more. Nice shots Grace!

  9. Old guys with grey hair ought not be taking on young guys with unlimited stamina. :) I know that from experience. And I rather like the older building that all that modern glass and steel! :)

  10. It's a very nice building and I am pleased it is there. The interior is well done too, modern but still deco.
